Sunday News Roundup: Fact-checkers Disappear as Dems Lard up the ‘Stimulus’ Bill With Pork

I write at length in another piece this morning about the media smear of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for putting his state’s elderly population first in line to receive the COVID vaccines. But that is far from the only media smear of DeSantis happening right now.

The Florida Governor is also being smeared for…wait for it…his efforts to ensure election integrity! No kidding:

From the story at BigLeaguePolitics:

Florida had the most transparent and efficient election anywhere in the country,” DeSantis said. “Other states took days, weeks, and even months to count their votes. And yet Florida, by midnight on election night, we had 99% reporting and 11 million votes counted, tabulated, and put out to the public.”

Florida’s legislature had moved to reform the state’s election practices in the interests of reporting brevity and election integrity following the disputed 2000 presidential election. The results of Florida’s presidential election were available and clear on election night in November, with other states implementing mass-in voting for the first time struggling to report results for several days or even weeks.

DeSantis’ proposal wouldn’t eliminate mail-in voting in Florida. It would merely require every voter who wishes to vote by mail to request a mail-in ballot every election, as opposed to mailing millions of ballots without verifying addresses and identities.

Under the package, only someone’s family member could drop off their ballot, in a move designed to prevent suspect political front groups from “harvesting” ballots. This would establish a clear chain of custody from the voter to the state without unnecessary third parties.

The comprehensive package would also require counties and municipalities to make election results public and transparent in timely fashion.

[End]

You just can’t make this stuff up, folks.

But wait, there’s more!

DeSantis is also under fire this weekend for taking this action on Friday:

That’s right: He’s the only governor in the country who is paying appropriate tribute to the single most influential media figure in our nation’s history. So naturally, the DC/New York Democrat media propaganda machine – who all hated Rush – are up in arms smearing DeSantis over this move, too.

If that doesn’t convince you that DeSantis is right at the top of potential GOP presidential nominees for 2024, then you aren’t paying attention. Assuming Donald Trump chooses not to make another bid, DeSantis is in fact the most likely to become the nominee at this moment in time.

I’m old enough to remember when a U.S. President got blamed for every one of these deaths by the corrupt national news media. – Yeah, but that was a month ago. Now that a Democrat sock puppet is in office, he won’t get blamed for the fact that more than 100,000 Americans supposedly died from COVID-19 during the first month of his presidency:

That, of course, is according to the official count, which we have all known for almost a year now is radically overblown. But still, 100,000 in a month seems like a lot, doesn’t it? Seems like something CNN and MSNBC and all of your local news stations would maybe take a moment to note, and maybe even display ticker at the bottom of the screen as a constant reminder. Right?

But all of those tickers have magically disappeared now, gone the moment China Joe Biden was sworn into the presidency. Funny how that works.

Guess what else has magically disappeared from the corrupt news media? – If you said “fact-checkers,” you win the prize. Remember how CNN, MSNBC, the Washington Post, the New York Times and all the alphabet broadcast networks had full-time presidential fake fact-checkers on staff to obsess over every word a certain ex-president had to say?

Yeah, they’re all gone now:

From the story at Mediaite:

CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale was one of the busiest people in the cable news business for several years, but he has almost completely disappeared from the network’s programming over the past month or so. What happened?

Dale became a veritable household name among cable news viewers during Trump’s presidency after his work for the Toronto Star, tallying and debunking false or misleading statements by Trump, landed him a national gig with CNN.

Since joining CNN in June of 2019, Dale has appeared or been mentioned on the network more than once every other day on average, according to the Internet Archive.

That exposure dropped sharply after November 4, and according to the TV Eyes media monitoring database, since President Joe Biden’s inauguration on January 20, Dale has only appeared on the network once. And that appearance, last Friday, was to fact-check Donald Trump’s lawyers.

[End]

That’s right: CNN’s “fact-checker” has made only one on-air appearance since China Joe was installed into the White House, and that was to “fact-check” lawyers for Donald Trump.

Nevermind that you could have kept an army of fact-checkers busy for a full week just to correct all the rank BS Biden spewed during his CNN town hall last week with Cooper Anderson, er, Anderson Cooper, that job will not be available for the next four years because it doesn’t fit neatly into the agenda of the Democrat Party and its army of operatives who infest the national news media.

*sigh*

What’s the most predictable thing in the world? – Democrats pushing pork.

That’s what they’re doing in this $1.9 trillion “stimulus” bill – larding it up with hundreds of billions of dollars in wasteful spending on leftist political projects:

From the story at RedState.com:

House Democrats finally released their long-awaited $1.9 trillion Wuhan coronavirus relief bill.

It probably wouldn’t take a rocket scientist to predict that it would be packed full of goodies for the friends of Democrats like the prior “relief” bills, seeming less about “relief” to help desperate Americans and more like doling out pork for pet causes.

Same song, 10,000th verse from your Democrat Party. Some things never change.

That is all.

Saturday News Roundup: Joe Potato Head Biden and San Fran Nan Say the Quiet Parts Out Loud

China Quid Pro Joe Potato Head Biden and San Fran Nan Pelosi both violated the cardinal rule of DC Swamp Kabuki Theater on Friday: They said the parts that are supposed to remain quiet out loud.

For the last 6 months I and many others have written about the probability that Biden is just a place-holder, selected by the Democrat Party to “win” the office only because Kamala Harris – their preferred choice – was to awful a candidate to have any hope of winning. Once installed in the Oval Office, Joe Potato Head would quickly develop some “health-related issue” to use as a reason for resigning and deeding the presidency to the sock puppet Harris. There never really has been any mystery about this being the Democrat plan: It’s been obvious from the day they fixed the South Carolina primary for Biden.

On Friday, Joe Potato Head’s creeping dementia took over his mouth and he just came right out and admitted that’s going to happen at the first sign of disagreement with his designated successor.

Watch with the sound turned on:

Oh. You don’t say. If you think Joe Potato Head was just joking around there, just give it ’til March or so and watch what happens. You’ll be welcoming President Kamala before you know it.

Then there was San Fran Nan, speaking to the assembled lapdog press a little bit later in the day, looking and sounding for all the world like a villain out of a Batman movie. Pelosi spent the entirety of August through Election Day personally serving as a decrepit, doddering, slobbering roadblock to any and all Covid-related stimulus legislation. She also spent every day of those three months lying about what she was doing.

Well, on Friday, she not only admitted what she’s done, she bragged that she is really quite proud of it all. You don’t have to believe me – just watch and listen:

Oh.

In other unintentionally hilarious news, Joe Potato Head told Fake Jake Tapper on CNN that he will make sure that his crook son Hunter doesn’t do anything to mess up his presidency, because of course he says that.

From a story at the New York Post:

President-elect Joe Biden said Thursday his son Hunter Biden won’t reap an overseas business windfall from his new job as commander-in-chief.

“My son, my family will not be involved in any business, any enterprise that is in conflict with or appears to be in conflict with where there’s appropriate distance from the presidency and government,” Biden told CNN journalist Jake Tapper in a taped interview.

Hunter Biden’s business relationships in China, Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine became a major focus in the weeks ahead of the Nov. 3 election.

An abandoned laptop provided by a Delaware computer repairman to President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani contained bombshell documents appearing to implicate Joe Biden in his son’s business relationships in China and Ukraine.

[End]

Of course, Biden gave similar assurances to the fawning media and the public that he wouldn’t use the office of the Vice Presidency for personal financial gain, and we saw how that all worked out. If you beliee him when he says it now, you’re even dumber than you looked when you voted for him.

From our Yeah, Sure, Right, Uh-huh, You Betcha file… – Fat, lazy, do-nothing Attorney General William Barr says his DOJ is on the job!

*sigh*

On the China Virus front, the news is not all bad and depressing. – After all, the Sheriff of Los Angeles County promised yesterday to defy Governor Gavin Newsom’s latest draconian shutdown order. From a story at DailyWire:

On Thursday, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva reportedly asserted that he won’t force his deputies to enforce a new statewide stay-at-home order against businesses issued by California Governor Gavin Newsom and state health officials.

Bill Melugin of KTTV tweeted that Sheriff Villanueva “tells me he found out about the new stay at home orders from Governor Newsom’s press conference, and there was no coordination with law enforcement beforehand, which he says is concerning when the Governor is expecting enforcement of his orders.”

Villanueva told KTTV, “I want to stay away from business[es] that are trying to comply, they bent over backwards to modify their operations to conform to these orders and then they have the rug yanked out from under them, that’s a disservice. I don’t want to make them more miserable.”

Melugin added, “Sheriff Villanueva says he believes the Lakers & Dodgers celebrations and Thanksgiving played a part in our recent surges, and that the civil unrest protests earlier in the year contributed to an earlier surge. Doesn’t believe restaurants, etc, are to blame.”

[End]

So, not all California public officials are despicable fascists. Good to know.

Yeah, they might all end up in prison. – Meanwhile, down in the Devil’s playpen that is Georgia, election officials are begging a judge to allow them to purge the general election data from their Dominion Systems voting machines, claiming that a failure to do so could result in “grave and serious consequences”:

Good lord. What a cesspool Fulton County has become.

That is all.

Pelosi, Biden Plumb New Depths of Political Depravity

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

They literally corrupt everything they touch. – Including stimulus bills in time of national emergency, as we found out last night. At the prodding of Nancy Pelosi, Senate Democrats banded together to filibuster the stimulus bill working its way through that chamber, a bill that had been exhaustively negotiated between congressional leader of both parties – including San Fran Nan – for three days. By late morning on Sunday, it appeared that a deal had been struck:

But just hours after that meeting concluded, San Fran Nan began making noises about how the Senate bill was “inadequate” and promising to move her own bill in the House. The hangup? Well, abortion, of course. Seems the Senate bill doesn’t provide a bailout for Planned Parenthood, and the party of abortion on demand cannot possibly allow their baby-killing machine to suffer like everyone else in our society. It’s their religion, after all. Well, one of their religions, along with Climate Change and Alinskyism.

From the PJMedia article linked above:

Even more ominous to Democrats was a Medicaid restriction that would hurt Planned Parenthood and other non-profits.

A Democratic aide said that the small business provision was drafted to exclude non-profits who receive Medicaid from being eligible for Small Business Administration assistance offered under the bill. That, according to the aide, would impact Planned Parenthood but also community health centers, rape crisis centers and disability service providers.

Planned Parenthood is not a “small business” and non-profits, as their name implies, aren’t “businesses” either. Tens of millions of dollars — or more — could be denied to real small businesses who need that cash as well.

[End]

Thus, the Democrats are willing to tank the stock market even further and throw thousands more people out of jobs so that their baby-killing “non-profit” (except from the sale of baby body parts) factories can keep killing. Does it get any more ghoulish than that? Hard to imagine how.

Meanwhile, Quid Pro Joe prepares to create even more confusion and division. – Many have been wondering where the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator has been over the past week, since he basically disappeared from view after wins in several state primaries on Tuesday.

The answer came in a piece by Politico on Friday: He’s planning to hold what he is calling “regular shadow briefings” to provide his supporters in the corrupt news media with alternative talking points to what the President’s Coronavirus Task Force is telling the public:

Joe Biden is planning a regular shadow briefing on coronavirus to start as early as Monday to show how he would handle the crisis and address what he calls the lies and failures of President Trump.

Biden gave a preview of what’s to come in a conference call with reporters Friday, where he listed a litany of false and misleading statements from Trump, who has been holding regular White House press conferences concerning coronavirus preparedness and response that have been broadcast live on all major networks.

“President Trump stop saying false things, will ya?” Biden said. “People are worried they are really frightened, when these things don’t come through. He just exacerbates their concern. Stop saying false things you think make you sound like a hero and start putting the full weight of the federal government behind finding fast, safe and effective treatments.”

Biden made his comments from his home in Wilmington, Delaware, where he has been holed up for more than a week in adherence with Centers for Disease Control guidelines that urge people to practice social distancing.

[End]

Why would he do this, you ask? Why, because the Task Force briefings have proved to be very effective in keeping the public informed, in the process providing the President with a platform to speak directly to the American people. As a result, the President’s public approval rating has skyrocketed, rising into the mid-50s in multiple polls last week.

This reality created a panic situation in the Democrat/media complex of propaganda late in the week. The media responded with a new narrative, accusing the President of lying, with op/eds in both the NY Times and Washington Post demanding that the networks actually stop covering the briefings. Now, despite Quid Pro Joe’s obvious advancing mental decline, they are urging him to get out there multiple times a week to provide a rebuttal to the President that all the networks will also air.

So, in a time of national crisis and a declared state of national emergency, we see the Democrats and their media toadies planning a process that is intentionally designed to decrease public confidence in government, increase confusion and produce outright panic.

Make no mistake about it: That is literally the outcome these demented and depraved people prefer. They are so mad with their pursuit of power that they would rather see millions of ordinary Americans suffer, lose their retirements, and see mass rioting in the streets than to see President Trump’s public approval ratings tick up by 5 percentage points because he’s doing a good job.

It used to be fair to merely say that a vote for a Democrat is a vote for socialism. As of this morning, it is entirely fair to say that a vote for a Democrat is a vote for the destruction of our economy and our society.

Stop doing it, folks.

That is all.
